This elegant building has been the Archbishop?s seat since Ferdinand I bought it in the 16th century. It was built on the foundations of a Renaissance home and rebuilt several times.

A chapel with frescoes was added in 1599-1600.

Take a look at the coat of arms of Prince-Archbishop Prichovsky above which you can see a group of sculpted figures by Platzer.
